Beyond.2019 Data Analytics Conference
Visualizing The Future of Analytics
ThoughtSpot, an AI-driven data analytics company, hosts a yearly Beyond Conference that gathers the country's top data and analytics professionals from hundreds of organizations, including many Fortune 500 companies. With such high caliber attendees, in 2019 the stakes were high and they needed to be able to communicate the power of their sophisticated technology in a way that was both memorable and exciting.
It was a big challenge and we had just one month to complete an entire graphics system with the all-important conference opener as the main animation.
What started out as a design project for a conference quickly turned into a re-imagining of how ThoughtSpot as a whole communicated their brand's value.
We focused the
on the big idea of using Search and AI to surface relevant insights to non-technical business people that they can quickly use to take action in their businesses. That's the power of ThoughtSpot, and that's the story that needed telling at Beyond Conference.
Through the use of metaphor,
we helped visualize a complex message.
Inspired by kaleidoscopes, we were able to communicate the joy of discovery that happens when multiple ideas finally 'click' into place, which is exactly what Thoughtspot's AI-driven insights do every day for their users. We created graphics for multiple experiences - from digital signage to title sequence animations and more - that all seamlessly integrated to communicate the value of ThoughtSpot’s robust technology.
The Creative Director of ThoughtSpot said,
"Beyond was a great success! We could not have accomplished this without the partnership with leftchannel.
The experience we created for Beyond is now impacting ThoughtSpot’s overall brand direction. We are continuing our work together, both fulfilling our mission to make the world more fact-driven and transforming the complex into a simple, memorable story that connects faster with customers.
